I used to repair these things many moons ago, these old radio sets were the perfection in all ways, other than the early ones used the old germanium transistors, and they could be very noisy, I had a `"New Yorker" for many years, but sadly stolen. the good thing was that they had an IF frequency of 465khz and this is 100 times better than the 455khz used today. This point may not matter in the USA, but in the UK and Europe it made all the difference as the incoming signal is divided into the IF frequency.
These things are easy to repair, well they were easy for me as that was my line of work, there are specialist that fix these things.
